Description

Silver Pin Studios in partnership with Give Kids the World Village presents an intimate panel discussion on Walt Disney's journey from the 1964-65 New York World's Fair through the opening of Epcot.

Disney legend Bob Gurr joins award winning author Jeff Barnes in an intimate evening as they discuss Walt's leadership style and the loyalty his team of imagineers and designers had, in order to complete Walt Disney World after Walt's untimely death in 1966.

Bob Gurr and Jeff Barnes

In addition to our panel discussion, we will be auctioning and raffling signed artwork from classic Disney artists Don "Ducky" Williams and Joe Kaminski!

WALT DISNEY - MASTER OF DREAMERS; FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARY

Why was the 1964 NY World's fair so important to the future of the Disney Parks? Walt's Genesis idea for Epcot was never supposed to be a theme park. Instead, it would be a true progress city of the future, where new ideas and technologies would be tested in Walt's utopian world. What challenges did Walt's team of imagineers face in executing his original plans for Epcot and why did the team ultimately abandon Walt's original concept?

Walt Disney - Master of Dreamers

These questions are the thesis of a new documentary, Walt Disney - Master of Dreamers, from Director Anthony Cortese. The film is set to release in the Fall of 2018 and features Disney legends Bob Gurr, Richard Sherman and Rolly Crump. Supporting commentary from Author's Jeff Barnes & Sam Gennawey along with Audio Animatronics pioneer Garner Holt and other contributors are also included in the film.

An exclusive preview of the film will be screened at the event.
